    well a couple of hours out

    Hi all, My eldest has wanted to go fishing for a long time he's been asking for a few years, I thought it was fad he'd fall out of, however I bought a cheap fishing set to see if he'll stick with it. I've never fished nor had any interest to do so as such I have no clue what to do at all, so...

    Fishing - How do I get started?

    Yo, Early morning chaps! I've been thinking lately about getting more hobby time under my belt and more time out of the fort. My commitments to my very limited shooting club are rocky at best due to personal obligations so I was thinking about a more relaxed and cheaper hobby I can get into...

    First paddle...stalked by a whale!

    Well - checked the forecast yesterday and it looked like it was going to be a nice start this morning. So, set my alarm and was up and out by 6.30am, took a little while to get the new kayak into the water as it's a little on the heavy side for one person to carry. It's a Galaxy tandem...

    Made a Priest! WIP - Picture heavy!!

    Good morning, forumites! I knocked up a hunting priest with some scrap snooker cue that was left over from material sourcing and figured you guys would like to see how it was done.

Thats European Garfish (Belone Belone) and not the freshwater Gar that my american friends think of. They're great game fish! They strike with aggression, leap out of the water...

    Copper Fishing Lures

    Thought I would share some fishing lures I have been churning out on my "sick day" today. It's all from the tutorials in Bushcraft & Survival Skills magazine issues 10 & 11. I've used some copper from plant pot labels (rather than pipes as in the tutorial), its pretty thin but i hope with some...

    fly fishing travel rod?

    anyone got any recommendations for a nice travel fly rod, preferably with a reel, for around 60 quid? i've seen a few fly fishing starter kits but they tend to be 2 piece rods so still quite long to be wandering around with. it'll be mainly used for poking around tarns and streams in the lakes...
